“How Many, Baby?”

-For Katie my love

Tyler R. Martin

How many syllables
To describe my love for you,
How hard must I try
When I know you're feeling blue?
How much should I sweetly dote
To really let you know
That I love it when you wear
My jacket,
Hold my hand and not let go?

How many syllables
Until you truly understand,
I need you every waking moment,
You’re my every thought,
My every plan.
I love your each and every atom,
You’re my gorgeous girl,
And I'll always be your man.
How many syllables
Before you choose to believe,
You’re my darling little doll
And I swear I'll never leave.
How many syllables
Until it is too clear,
Now I'm yours forever,
You have nothing left
To fear...
